Men and the Buddy System

So many male organizations use the Buddy System. Boy Scouts have a whole page Click here for Buddy System Badge info.  

Page 1 of Glossary not badges? Click here 
the Girl Scout's Glossary has one line of information about the Buddy System and not much about what is necessary for badges. Does this mean girls don't use the Buddy System as effectively or that there isn't enough on badges for girls?

Tell me the last time you heard of a female organization that talked about the Buddy System?

Open Letter to Dick Yarborough

Hey Dick,
I go to church at First Presbyterian Church Atlanta next to the High Museum. My resume is 5 pages long and I receive a bulletin from the church that originally ordained me titled "Rev. Charlotte Fairchild."  One of the members at First Presbyterian quoted Latin to me trying to insult me and then told me he thought I was defrocked. I have been  going there for years now. They are testing God!

Don't they know I am as important as Jesus and as important as Balaam's Ass? My ordination hasn't been recinded nor have I been defrocked. I have NEVER been promiscuous, molested children, been addicted to pornography, and all the other crap that so many ministers are doing in all denominations to get defrocked.

All I did is get 10 years of college and 6 scholarships including one for a residency as a chaplain at Baptist Medical Center in Jacksonville, Florida. I started out as a Veteran's Administration Nursing Home Chaplain Intern at Milledgeville, GA. My degrees are at Judson College, Marion, Alabama established 1838 and no, it was not closed for the WAR BETWEEN THE STATES, (nothing civil about it) and my scholarship was the Lurleen B. Wallace Scholarship (don't get me started on her husband). I am proud of that scholarship because she was the only governor Alabama will ever have who is female. Tell me when I am wrong?

New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, New Orleans, Louisiana is my Alma Mater (Pater) for my Master's of Divinity. I am one semester shy of having a double master's degree. My scholarships during graduate school were from First Baptist Church of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I attended 4 colleges/universities before I graduated TWO years after receiving my diploma from Headland High School. The University of Alabama was one of them and so I received scholarships.

In graduate school, Dr. Cothan said, "I would not step down to be President of the United States," when asked about his calling. Everyone kept asking him why he didn't run for office because he was such a great speaker. He and all the professors started classes with a joke/ice breaker. I know some about Balaam's Donkey I cannot print here. This helped since there was a murder the year I started seminary. The women in Carey Hall received a death threat. Click here: Dr. Robbins' wife. Dr. Robbins' wife had been murdered on campus and so we were exempted from all but one preaching course after the death threat.

I wasn't allowed to begin class with prayer in several classes, and especially the one intro preaching class that was the only requirement for women. In my graduate classes there were 90 men and two (2) or three (3) women in each class. Most of the time I was fearless. There was no such thing as the Buddy System on campus or in New Orleans. I used to go to Magazine Street Rescue Mission as a week-end Supervisor, or to the United Methodist Emergency Shelter for Foster Children on Washington Street across from the Projects seperated by the St. Charles Avenue Trolley alone. I went and returned alone at night because I worked at night. By night I mean when it was dark.  I only drove a car for 6 months, because most of the time I was on a bus or a trolley.

So why do I get the same "guff" from Presbyterians, Methodists, Episcopalians, Lutherans? Why aren't they using me? Because I do get the same guff from them. Maybe they are telling themselves they dislike me because my credentials are Southern Baptist (instead of seeing Christ in me).  Maybe the Southern Baptists have gotten disgusted with Southern Baptists and infiltrated so many mainline denominations that the guff is evenly spread around?  By guff, do I mean sexism?

I do have to say that when I go into any black church, I am used. None of the preachers let me sit. They put me to work praying, ordaining, standing with the other preachers during baptism, and whatever is needed.  I am as blond as Meredith Hope Emerson ever was.

Unmarked cars - remember -- 112

WARNING: Some knew about the red light on cars, but not Dialing 112.
An UNMARKED police car pulled up behind her and put his lights on. Lauren's parents have always told her to never pull over for an unmarked car on the side of the road, but rather to wait until they get to a gas station, etc.

Lauren had actually listened to her parents advice, and promptly called, 112 on her cell phone to tell the police dispatcher that she would not pull over right away. She proceeded to tell the dispatcher that there was an unmarked police car with a flashing red light on his rooftop behind her. The dispatcher checked to see if there were police cars where she was and there weren't, and he told her to keep driving, remain calm and that he had back up already on the way.
Ten minutes later 4 cop cars surrounded her and the unmarked car behind her. One policeman went to her side and the others surrounded the car behind. They pulled the guy from the car and tackled him to the ground. The man was a convicted rapist and wanted for other crimes.
I never knew about the 112 Cell Phone feature. I tried it on my AT&T phone & it said, "Dialing Emergency Number."
Especially for a woman alone in a car, you should not pull over for an unmarked car. Apparently police have to respect your right to keep going on to a safe place.

*Speaking to a service representative at Bell Mobility confirmed that 112 was a direct link to State trooper info. So, now it's your turn to let your friends know about "Dialing, 112"
You may want to send this to every Man, Woman & Youngster you know; it may well save a life.
This applies to ALL 50 states

Face Book

On Facebook there is a group for the Silver Comet Trail. I noticed there is only one woman who sometimes posts. Most of the posts are by men, and all of the people ride bicycles. No one skates, walks, runs, or anything else often on the Silver Comet Trail. There is a real interest for a night ride on the Silver Comet Trail. I was on the group site for more than 7 months. The men are friends. I didn't get to know any women on the Face Book Group. I left the group and I doubt seriously that they will notice I am gone.  I hope I am not missed.

They were not interested in putting anything about the Buddy System on the Silver Comet Trail. Most of them use the Buddy System. Most of them talked about also carrying a permit and a gun. If you are interested and male, then you will enjoy this group more.

Night riding on the Silver Comet Trial.

Last night I saw someone riding after 9 pm. I have never been on the SCT at night while riding. My dog lost some of her vision and Deputy Quinn helped me get her into the truck. He put the lights on the door so she could see. It was dusk when I went to the truck and she couldn't see well enough. That was the last time I took her to the SCT.

It would take $100.00 to put 100 bumper stickers on trees along the Silver Comet Trail. I wouldn't mind selling them if people wanted to do that. Would you put bumper stickers on trees on the Silver Comet Trail? It would take $10.00 to put bumper stickers on the Etiquette and Rules signs on the Silver Comet Trail. Click here for video of the sign.

The old sign: Click here. ON the other side.

Buddy System Scares People

Posting that using a Buddy System in the military will keep people out of the military? Not hardly. People are going to join because they are patriotic this Flag Day and every day.

Buddy Sysem on the Etiquette signs will frighten people? Not hardly. Most people will ignore the sign or rebel. Will it help the liability of the SCT? Maybe. Ask a lawyer.

Click here for video on the Silver Comet Trail Sign.  

I have been raising funds for bumper stickers "Buddy System" and "Instant Buddy" I will give these to people who buy Murder on the Silver Comet Trail (MOTSCT) and I may put some up at Jennifer Ewing's memorial site. I won't go alone. Please make buddies in life so you can live longer.

Self Defense

Video of nuns in the 1970's using self defense.

The last line of my book, Murder on the Silver Comet Trail: Click here 
What do you think about this? How many women do you know use and practice self defense? Is Tai Chi something some women you know practice?

I followed Andrew Chung, MD/PhD for Tai Chi for a few years. He still practices and teaches.

Garage Sales

Neighborhoods don't have many people walking around usually. Garage sales are important for a lot of people. Putting things out and doing a garage sale alone isn't safe.

People do it. What can increase safety? Asking neighbors to stop by? Asking neighbors to watch out for you?   Asking neighbors to go in with you for selling things or a neighborhood garage sale? I am having a garage sale every Friday in June to get rid of things in the house. I have a couch for sale (Lazyboy 2 recliners couch blue plaid). 

Ya'll come. London Lane and Buckingham Drive in Hiram, GA.
